January 1905, Manchuria. The Russo-Japanese War has been going on for nearly a year. The Japanese has just dealt the Russians a notable blow by capturing Port Arthur.
The end seems to be in sight but the Japanese themselves are in the blink of collapse as their manpower and resources are stretched to the full.
Preparing a final showdown with the Russians, the Japanese sends Lieutenant Tatekawa and 5 soldiers on a scout mission.
They are to go behind the Russian lines for information of their subsequent plans. These 6 get what they need, but the essential and toughest part is to make it back.
